Weekend Activities

Our weekend activities embrace the world both on and off campus. You’ll take advantage of our proximity to major cities like Philadelphia and New York, and we also value the richness of diversity that exists on campus. On a given weekend, there might be opportunities to explore mural arts in Philly, collaborate to build a raft, make empanadas, design a creation for a fashion show, or solve a mystery on a New York City visit.

The George School campus provides 240 acres to experience and explore. Students can practice yoga, use the ropes course, try their hand at archery, participate in campus scavenger hunts, enjoy Live Music Weekend, stargaze on South Lawn, and grab some snacks to watch an outdoor movie with their friends in the William Penn Auditorium. Community members make the most of weekends at George School, and there is something for everyone!

*On “Closed Weekends” boarding students are not permitted overnight absences and are expected to stay overnight in the dorm. Such weekends exist to allow students to come together and share in the special activities created for these weekends. A “Closed Weekend” does not mean students cannot leave campus; day trips are permitted. Day students are welcome to attend activities on campus during these special weekends. If you have any questions, please contact the Deans’ Office at deans@georgeschool.org or 215-579-6589.
